Gabby was the town crier in "Gulliver's Travels". A series of 9 Gabby cartoons was produced in 1940-41. "Gabby Goes Fishing" is number 7. Gabby wants to teach a young boy how to catch the really big fish and ends up getting hooked himself. This Public Domain copy is faded indeed, but still a contribution to the collection of Fleischer cartoons on this site.

Let me show you how it's done!
Another amusing Gabby cartoon. This time, he shoes a happily fishing tyke (he's caught some!) how to REALLY fish! Of course, he then goofs everything up. The cartoon then becomes more of a "fish vs Gabby" cartoon, the boy is forgotten. Fun situations and pretty good animation!
